Hamlet is mad because of rejected love? They will spy on him as Ophelia is let loose on him. Why does Hamlet call Polonius a fishmonger?

Denmarks a prison for there is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so. To me it is a prison. Oh God, I could be bounded in a nutshell and count

1 Oh what a spiritless coward am I!! 2 Isnt it unbelievable that this actor can react physically to

someone elses sorrow, someone elses cause? His thoughts matched his actions. 3

For Hecuba! They dont even care about each other! 4 What would his reaction be if he had my cause? My

motivation? Hed take action and make sure that everybody heard about the grave injustice! He would astonish eyes and ears! 5

Yet I am a dull rascal, not stirred to action by my important duty. 6.

No not even for a king who was robbed of life and power! Not even for my father, whom I love! 7 and 8

Does anyone call me names or mock me?! Well I deserve to be mocked, pinched, and made fun of! I cannot summon the courage to act against this injustice! 9

O Vengeance! Like a coward I need solid evidence. 10 I have heard that when guilty people are reminded of the

terrible thing they have done (by seeing it acted out in front of them), they are stirred to feel remorse and to admit to their misdeeds. 11

Murder will make itself heard in a miraculous way! 12 I will have these players play something like the murder of

my father and will observe the kings reactions. If he shows ANY guilt, I will take action against him. 13 It might have been an evil spirit trying to trick me into

damning myself (sending myself to hell). 14 If I get solid proof, then I will have more evidence than my

fathers spirits word. The play is the key to getting proof.
